Because of Enbridge’s rigorous pipeline maintenance, testing, training, monitoring and safety programs, a pipeline leak is unlikely. However, if an emergency situation occurs, we are prepared and will respond promptly in partnership with local emergency responders to protect the safety of the public and the environment.
Pipeline incidents are rare, but they can occur. The products carried in Enbridge’s pipelines are flammable and potentially hazardous or explosive under certain conditions.
Know the Warning Signs
The Enbridge system carries many kinds of hydrocarbons, and each product has individual characteristics. This means that the warning signs can vary, depending on the product involved.
Recognize and Respond
It’s important for our neighbors to know how to recognize and respond to a pipeline emergency.
